Find inspiration in the wide-open spaces of the Yukon. Iconic wilderness parks and a dynamic First Nations culture draw you in, as you canoe mighty rivers, pan for gold in the Klondike, and dance under the midnight sun. In this territory, one thing is certain: adventure will be your guide.

Here, a quarter of the population are Indigenous Peoples — including 14 First Nations and eight language groups. The Kwanlin Dün First Nation. The Kluane First Nation. The Tagish First Nation. Their ancestors have called this vast region home for more than 12,000 years, and they have remarkable stories and experiences to share.   

Be captivated by these vibrant cultures through visits to cultural centres or museums like the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre. Enjoy traditional dance, storytelling and art at a festival like the Adäka Cultural Festival. Embark on a fishing tour with a local Indigenous guide who has generations of knowledge to share. No visit to the Yukon is complete without taking the time to gain a deeper understanding of its very first residents.
